Detailing Freight Cars


Softcover book.

In clear step-by-step photos this book shows you how to make off-the-shelf freight cars come to life. With a little effort you can weather and detail each one to reflect its own unique working history, just like the prototype. While you're making your cars look better you can also make them run better with operating upgrades to couplers and wheelsets.
